In the small town of Sant Ferriol, located in La Garrotxa and very close to Besalú, you can find very authentic holiday cottages and ideal tourist accommodation to enjoy this town known, above all, for the sanctuary of Santa Maria de Collell. A fantastic village for lovers of hiking and mountain biking.

What can I do in Sant Ferriol and its holiday cottages?

In the eastern half of the Garrotxa, to the right of the Fluvià River, we find an extensive municipality of just over two hundred inhabitants that is part of the Fluvià River Protected Natural Area. A fantastic town for lovers of active tourism.

The history of Sant Ferriol and its surroundings

It wasn't until 1857 that Ossinyà, Fares, Juïnyà, La Miana, El Torn and Sant Ferriol joined together and formed a single municipality that was called, curiously, Parish of Besalú until 1930, since they all depended ecclesiastically on the parish of Besalú. In fact, the history of the municipality is intrinsically linked with that of its churches and sanctuaries. It has a long tradition, for example, the sanctuary of Santa Maria de Collell, founded in the 12th century as a Benedictine priory. During the Spanish Civil War it served as a prison, a fact that the writer Javier Cercas talks about in 'Soldiers of Salamis'. The church is currently open for worship.

What to do during your stay at a tourist accommodation in Sant Ferriol

Get to know its architectural heritage

If you spend a few days in Sant Ferriol, you can already sign up for a few essentials. At the entrance, the ruins of the church of Sant Silvestre del Mor , documented as far back as the 10th century. Nor can you miss the church of Sant Miquel de la Miana , composed of a single nave covered by a barrel vault and circular apse, and that of Sant Fructuós d'Ossinyà , which was built in the twelfth century and renovated in 2001. And, obviously, you must visit the sanctuary de la Mare de Déu de Collell, an old Benedictine priory founded by the monastery of Sant Pere de Besalú in 12th century A sanctuary with a long history.

Hiking routes through the village

If you like hiking and mountain biking, you're in luck. Sant Ferriol is full of paths between valleys, streams and rivers ideal for walking or cycling. At the entrance, you can go up to the Sant Ferriol sanctuary to enjoy the spectacular views of La Garrotxa. But if you go there during the summer months, you can cool off in the Fluvià River Protected Natural Area . If you're traveling with a rascal, you can visit the Planeses organic farm, where they hold curd-making workshops.

VictoriaLa Canova - With the family

Very nice, spacious and cozy house in a perfect setting

Overall, we really liked the house. The only drawback is that until we have made the payment we have not been warned that it is not possible to cook in the auxiliary kitchen, when we had precisely chosen this house to have two kitchens (part of our group is celiac). It has also been quite inconvenient that especially on the top floor, insects (a type of bed bug) often fall from the wooden ceiling, also into the rooms.

Naturaki respond: Thank you very much, Victoria, for your opinion. We are glad to know that you liked the house. We take note of what you comment to review it. Thanks for the visit.

Stay in Can Jan on Christmas 2023

We were this Christmas with the family at the rural house of Can Jan, the stay was very, very good. The attention from the owner has been a 10. The house is very spacious and bright. On the facade there is an ideal space for children to play (the park). It is very well located, very quiet and there is nothing missing. We will be back!
